In Search of a Family: The Story of an International Adoption takes the reader inside the personal journey through the unknowns of an international adoption. It could be anywhere in the world, but this true story takes place in the post Cold War, ex-Soviet bloc country of Ukraine. As they travel through this young, independent republic, Kevin and Ginger Carlisle encounter virtually every obstacle that could derail their hopes of achieving their dream — creating their new family. Braving Ukrainian election tensions and protestors, heartbreaking events, financial concerns, and changing adoption policies, they navigate the emotional and psychological maze of bureaucracy and physical logistics. The book takes the reader through an account of their travel, highlighting the little known beauty of Ukraine and its people, while enduring the hardships of the language and infrastructure, all while placing their life and professions in American on hold. An eleventh hour attempt by a family member almost changes the history of this wonderful journey. As destiny patiently awaits, they keep reciting the mantra of all those who had come before them: Keep your focus on the goal of bringing home your children.
